The Ultimate, Definitive Guide to BYOB Restaurants in Las Vegas

Some restaurants have eagerly welcomed the BYOB concept, while others prefer to quietly discourage it. As a service and tourist-driven destination, BYOB isn't often discussed or championed in Las Vegas. And in fact, it's legally prohibited in the City of Las Vegas proper. (And you thought Sin City was a place where anything goes.) But the "city" of Las Vegas really only covers select areas of the valley, including Downtown, as well as parts of Summerlin and the northwest. What you have left over are areas -- including the Strip -- that are technically considered unincorporated Clark County, and not bound by City of Las Vegas jurisdiction. If this sounds confusing, you're not alone. That's why we've put together a guide to all the best restaurants where bringing a bottle isn't considered a sin. Just remember, BYOB policies and prices can change at any given time, so it's a good idea to call in advance and double check. Some restaurants (including Restaurant Guy Savoy at Caesars Palace, Estiatorio Milos at the Cosmopolitan, and LAVO at the Palazzo) don't allow any bottles of outside alcohol at all.
